In brief: See your doc ASAP

The itching and the blistering suggest that this could be an allergic contact dermatitis, perhaps to the adhesive from the bandages.
But anytime there is an issue going on after surgery, it is very important to see the surgeon right away. Infection could also present similarly and must be excluded.
